Three Workers Killed Within Five Hours

Three different construction sites each had a fatal accident

Three construction workers were killed in the space of five hours on Thursday at three building sites.

A 16-year-old laborer was killed when scaffolding upon which several workers were sitting collapsed and fell at a site on Silver Street in the northern city of Nahariya.

A second worker, a 29-year-old man, was hospitalized in serious condition, and a third was lightly injured.

Earlier in the day, a 40-year-old man was killed when he fell from a high floor in a construction site in Rosh Ha’ayin, while a 50-year-old was hit by a tractor he was directing at a building site north of Tel Aviv.

Another construction worker was seriously hurt after receiving an electric shock at a building site in Beitar Illit southwest of Jerusalem. He was hospitalized at Jerusalem’s Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem with burns on his upper torso.
